Do you need vaccinations?
Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.
Select the region you are travelling to find out more.
We offer a full travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad please complete and submit the travel form in plenty of time (we recommend 6-8 weeks) before your journey.
Antimalarial Medication Prescribing
The Department of Health has issued guidance that medication taken to prevent malaria must not be on NHS prescriptions. There are no exceptions to this.
Antimalarial medication should be either purchased from pharmacy or, for those antimalarials which require a prescription, a travel health clinic for a private prescription.

Prescriptions to cover travel outside of the UK
We are able (where your GP feels it is safe and appropriate) to supply your usual prescribed medication for temporary periods of between one and three months for travel out of the UK.
Please inform our prescription team of your dates of travel when ordering your prescription.
If you are abroad for more than three months then medical care must be sought in your destination. NHS prescriptions will never be provided to relatives to send abroad.
Patients are responsible for ensuring that any medication taken into a country conforms to local laws. GPs are also unable to prescribe medications for conditions which may arise when travelling e.g travel sickness, diarrhoea, altitude sickness medications (acetazolamide).
Contact a travel clinic for advice and supply of appropriate medication.
